The park has nice views. But, sitting in a canyon, great views are easy to come by in Moab. We'll be back to town. We just won't stay here again.
Why? There are many reasons, actually. Here's one. Sitting in our site in the "fancy" section, we felt like were parked at a truck stop! We had a big ol' Freightliner pulling a giant cargo trailer on one side and a Peterbilt with a similar set up on the other. Beside their big rigs, both neighbors had numerous ATVs, trailers and other toys.
This park bills itself as a luxury resort, but we beg to differ. This is one of two "casitas" on the property. These view-blocking casas grande tower over everything and everybody. How would you like to park next to this?
There's another resident Jeep with the requisite extra large cargo trailer parked next door. Bullwinkle and Rocky felt very plain and simple in this place. They weren't surrounded by a bunch of toys.
Speaking of toys, one of our neighbors had a very noisy one. This is the view out our window as a crowd gathered to check out this old hot rod. Periodically, this neighbor would fire this noisy thing up just to attract some attention. He did!
We did manage to get away from our noisy park and do some exploring in Moab. We found a couple of geocaches close by.
The best part of our stay was spending time with friends. John and Sandy and Mike and Susan stayed at the same park. We all got away from the hubbub one evening and enjoyed some tasty local barbeque. From here, John and Sandy are off to Wisconsin, and Mike and Susan are heading to the Pacific Northwest.
Friends Jim and Sandie (and Scooter and Skittlez) stopped by the park for a few days on their way to Montana. It had been over a year since we'd met up with these two. It was great to see them again.
This plaque rides on the back of Jim and Sandie's rolling home. We love it. Like our friends, we're not "dreamers". We're living!
We wish all our friends safe travels. And, we look forward to meeting up with them all again somewhere down the road. We're happy to be back on the road. But, it looks like the Freightliner gods have other plans.
More soon from our detoured destination.
